Not only their linebackers, but also their cornerbacks. Timmons has been fantastic for us, but he missed 4 tackles (while making 6) last week against the Ravens. If anyone should be up for the Ravens game, it should have been an ex-Steeler linebacker.

Miami’s linebackers missed a surprising number of tackles. Veteran Rey Maualuga has done a nice job in a limited role this season. But Ravens running back Buck Allen ran right through his arm tackle with 9:37 left in the fourth quarter. Maualuga, who blew away his season-high in snaps, was probably a bit tired. But Miami thought it had cured its tackling woes from last season, and they reared an ugly head again. In the first quarter, Maualuga was slow to get off the field and was the 12th man on a penalty declined by the Ravens because of a deep touchdown pass. In the first quarter, Vincent Taylor was tied up in the interior and Lawrence Timmons was unable to shed a block and make a tackle in a 19-yard again by Alex Collins. In the second quarter, William Hayes, who has been so good this season, failed to set an edge and Lawrence Timmons fails to make a tackle on another Collins run. Timmons missed four tackles overall, according to Pro Football Focus. Perhaps the short week didn’t help old war horses Maualuga and Timmons. http://dailydolphin.blog.palmbeachpost. ... -review-2/
